Welcome to Rosliston Forestry Centre

February 2021

Whilst lockdown number three continues, our car park remains open for your access and enjoyment of the forest to take your daily exercise.  Please note that our machines only accept coins and do not issue change.  If you would like to purchase an Annual Car Park Pass for £35, please download the application form here.  The form includes information on how to pay by direct transfer and then we will send your pass to you in the post.  

The Hub Café and soft play centre will remain closed until we return to something like normal but you can access the toilets, the forest and outdoor play areas.  Please note that face masks must be worn whilst inside the buildings.

Lodges are available only for exempted breaks, but we are taking bookings for the year ahead and some availability remains throughout the spring, summer and autumn.  Why not get in touch and check out our availability in the anticipation of treating yourself when restrictions are eased.  Any breaks affected by COVID-19 will be rescheduled on a like for like price basis, so you have nothing to lose.

We look forward to being able to welcome you again soon.
